    I put a rifle cartridge in my mom's cookstove when I was a kid and blew the lid off it. My father couldn't really wup my ass cuz he had to 'fess up to doing the exact same thing when he was a kid. Guess the acorn didn't fall far from the tree.

    I think that skinnykid needs to post again on this "pine burning disease"--just so we can all be assured he didn`t burn his house down. He last posted on this "diseased subject" on Nov.12. :lol:

    I've been burning sappy pine for a month now. This weekend I decided to sweep my chimney just to see what it looked like inside and to see what came out. Short answer : soot.

    My class A 8" 16 foot stainless steel chimney allows ample opportunity for creosote to condense near the top of the run. But nope, not even after burning a 1/2 cord of pine. I'm still going to keep an eye on things by sweeping every month or so. But this idea of burning pine means instant chimney fire is bogus. But a great way to convince your neighbor to pay you to remove his pine.

    If you choose to burn pine, you should:

    1)clean your chimney twice a day
    2)have the fire department park outside your house 24/7
    3)sacrifice your first born
    4)dance naked on your roof when the sun is at its highest point
    5)not burn more than 1 piece at a time, maximum diameter of 2"

    If you follow these steps it might please the gods enough to reduce your chances of a chimney fire from 'definitly' to 'possibly'.


    Sleep tight!

    Great job on the pine rules!
    All people should follow them as if law!

    As for me I'm an outlaw and choose to live dangerously!

    I think we need to do our good deeds to society, and go out and get all the pine from people so they don't burn down their houses.


    WE WOULD BE HEROES!!!

    We could save the world!!!!
    1 home at a time!
    Do you think we could get them to help with the splitting and stacking though? It's the least they could do since we saved them from burning their houses down.

    I've done my part today to save the world. I took this picture 4 hours ago. 2 hours ago I took it all home. There was a lot more off camera. All of it pine. 4 truck loads with the bed riding on the leaf springs each trip.

    They will sing songs about me.

    &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

    I just take a bucket full of saw dust from my table saw or chain saw & dampen it with #2 fuel oil.
    Maybe a pint or a pint & 1/2 of #2 fuel oil depending on the size & amount of saw dust in the bucket.
    Lightly damp is good enough!!
    The saw dust color changes from light wood colored to a darker oilier shade.
    The darker the color,the more fuel oil that you have put in.

    You can always add more saw dust if you put in too much fuel oil the first time you try it.
    You don't need much fuel oil, just a medium dampness at most.
    Now ,I use a small hand garden spade to shovel the fire starter (fuel oil dampened saw dust)
    all over the wood I want to lite & touch a match to it.

    Instant fire!!

    The saw dust starts burning slowly but quickly spreads & then burns fast for about 10 minutes.

    You could use one newspaper twist to start the oil dampened saw dust, if you want, but this is not necessary as 1 match will do it.

    been doing this all this year with never a problem.

    About 2 gallons of fuel oil or desal fuel will make fire starter for the entire burning season.

    Dont put this oil soaked saw dust on hot embers as (the embers) vaporizes the fuel oil & the vapor stinks & the fumes (vapors are more flamable that the oil soaked saw dust.

    Start out with less oil dampened saw dust until you see how it burns & get an idea what 2 expect.

    I dont use a pan or anything, because it is only lightly moist, not dripping, just shovel it on 2 the wood, but use it spairingly until you learn its ways.

    A lot faster & less effort than crumpling newspaper.

    I have to say that anytime some one has free pine I'm all over it. I like burning pine since there's less ask and just as much heat created. So I stuff twice the # of logs in the stove! who cares!

    not me.
